Exploring the Community Business Revolution

Exeter Street Hall

Wednesday 15 Nov 6:30PM - 8:30PM

16-17 Exeter Street, Brighton, BN1 5PG

Businesses created by and for the benefit of their local communities are making a massive difference all over the country, possibly nowhere more than in Sussex.

This evening gathering will highlight the great impact that community businesses are having in the area and will inspire and help others on their own community business journeys.

Meet like-minded people, eat good food and explore the community business revolution…

Spotlight on community business

Curtis James will provide a multimedia production of a day in the life of the Bevy, the UK’s only community pub on a housing estate and the Stoneham Bakery, a community bakery promoting wellbeing through real bread.  Using talk, interviews and soundscapes, he will provide an immersive 20 minute experience allowing participants to get under the bonnets of these two organisations and understand the social issues that they are confronting with their work.

Panel discussion

We’ll be hearing and probing the stories of some of the community leaders who have made Brighton and the surrounding area such a hot bed of community activity. Hosted by Vidhya Alakeson, the Chief Executive of Power to Change

Food will be provided free of charge by St Johns College , and there will be a pay bar.
